Water and steam can both exist at 100 degrees F. However steam also contains more heat/energy than water because of the enthalpy of vaporization needed to turn water into steam. When steam comes into contact with the skin, it is exothermic and releases heat. This also releases the heat that was necessary for the phase change.
